My Wife and I stayed at the Iris Cottage last September (2015) and it was fantastic! Fantastic views of the mountains and very close (about a mile) to Rocky Mountain National Park! The owners were very helpful and welcoming. Yes...it is next to a road....but no big deal....it is still fantastic! My Wife and I will come back when we...

Stayed with my mom and aunt, & we all agreed that the Mountain Meadow is very cute. We had a great view of RMNP, and enjoyed our morning coffee & afternoon read on back deck. We also saw mule deer grazing from the deck. Oven, and under furniture could use some TLC, but overall very well maintain and clean. Pic...

We stayed in the Iris for several nights as we explored the Estes Park area and took day hikes into Rocky Mountain National Park. We loved the Iris. It has a bit of rustic charm, with updates in all the right places (nice bathroom, flatscreen tv and dvd player, great bed). I loved that we had our own little private...

Colorado Cottages was our favorite of the seven different lodgings we had during our 11 day trip. We stayed there for the first two nights and came back a week later, tired and missing home. The 'Indian Paintbrush' was just what we needed--so comfy and clean, we should have stayed there the entire time! LOVED the fireplace!! It was the...

Completely enjoyed our stay. Comfortable room, clean, cozy, wood burning fireplace in our cottage. Really enjoyed the firepit out back. Owners are very friendly and helpful. Be sure to visit "Coffee on the Rocks" up the road while you're there!

Rooms have kitchens, fireplaces, night stars, and elk. Can't find that in a hotel. Place is well located, close to the State Park, but walking distance to conveniences. Our family took 6 of the cottages for a wedding weekend. Great idea.

We enjoyed our stay at Colorado Cottages with our married daughter and son-in-law staying in a smaller cabin and my husband and I and our older teens in a larger cabin. The hosts are very friendly. We grilled on the grill outside our cabin and used the picnic table and dishes from the cabin too. We enjoyed being close to...

It was great staying here. We got more than we expected. Complimentary firewood (1 bundle) and kitchen tools we forgot to bring were available for use. The location was also very close to Beaver Meadows Entrance making it very convenient for hiking. Owners were very friendly and helpful.

We stayed here in the Bluebird duplex 2 years ago, and it was great. However, this time we stayed in the Timberline. I expected small, but the carpet was soiled, the bed was uneven, and the shower and bath were so small, I couldnt dry off in the bathroom!! The outside paint was peeling, but the mountain views were amazing.

Hi Donna! Timberline is our oldest and smallest unit. It's from 1914, and it's quite popular with hikers and people looking to "rough it." We tried to keep Timberline in its original form: as an old miner's cabin. It sounds like you had a great experience with the Bluebird duplex. I encourage you to try our other units again since...
